The Pedophile’s Guide to Love and Pleasure–on how to rape children more safely–safely for the pedophile, that is. Its focus is on how to get pedophiles lighter jail sentences should they be caught. I cannot believe Amazon is selling this! It is not okay on ANY level to encourage the rape of children–or of anyone. And Amazon, in selling this book, is encouraging the rape of children. A book like that should NOT be sold.
PLEASE Speak Loudly, and tell Amazon to remove this book from their site!
If you’ve read my blog or my YA novel Scars, you’ll know that I’m an incest and ritual abuse survivor. Rape was a daily and nightly occurrence in my home, from when I was a baby until I ran away…and they found me even after that. The rape alone left deep emotional scars that affected my entire view of the world, and left me feeling unsafe, unlovable, and unloved. It left me hating myself. Rape affects so much more than just the body it tears through. It hurts the soul.
My parents, who were part of a cult (actually, a number of interconnected cults) kept all sorts of horrible books in the house about torture and rape (and how to increase pain), as well as some weapons and implements. Most of those things they got through trading with or buying from other abusers–in secret. I am horrified that a book on how to rape children is now available–for anyone to buy, from any country–on Amazon.com. I am truly sickened. And enraged.
I know we all have busy lives. But please, please don’t let this pass you by. It only takes a few minutes to write an email to Amazon about this book. Hopefully, if enough of us deluge them, they will take the book down. They have not yet agreed to do so. You can also scroll down close to the bottom of the page for this book, where they have “Feedback” in a pale blue box, and click on “Would you like to report this content as inappropriate? Click here”. That will also help to gain Amazon’s attention.
Amazon–this is a real AmazonFail.
UPDATE: A great post with more info on the pedophile book Amazon is selling, and another way to help get them to stop selling it–by phoning in. Thanks to YA author Kimberly Pauley for the link.
If you’re interested in the email I wrote to Amazon, you can read it below:
Amazon–I was shocked and sickened to find that you are selling a book that promotes the rape of children on your site: The Pedophile’s Guide to Love and Pleasure.
I never thought I would see Amazon sell a book that hurts children, and encourages rape. My estimation of Amazon has sunk. Please remove this book from your site. It is not EVER okay to promote the rape of a child, or of anyone.
